Building Bridges at Rockland Preserve

The Connecticut Chapter of New England Mountain Bike Association was supposed to have Trail Building Seminar in Madison, CT but then Sandy came.  Today was the make up session.  Jason (in the green jacket) organized three projects, the construction of this bridge, a 100' section of trail benching and rock armoring at a stream crossing the locals call the Water Fall.  I took charge of the benching detail which you can read about in the next post, Benching Trail at Rockland Preserve.


The Bridge spans a low lying section at the base of a ridge that collects a lot of water in the spring
